- Junior Research Coordinator, GERAS Centre
“Geriatrics is an exciting and growing field where knowledge translation and work in both applied and clinical research are key. I wanted to be a part of that and that’s why I’m grateful to be part of such an amazing interdisciplinary team at the GERAS centre. You can feel the implications that this work can do in the community and that’s very rewarding”.
